Vegetable Pasta Sauce

This is a great recipe to use up your leftover vegetables that are going bad in your fridge or even use up your frozen vegetables. I made this recipe for my whole family and they couldn't tell that there were 5 servings of vegetables in this! Remember this is the recipe I used for the vegetables I found in my fridge. You can mix and match and make it more your own. I have tried this recipe a couple different ways with different vegetables and to me, it tastes the same. This is a great suggestion for people that don't like the taste of vegetables to get it in their diet.

1 tbsp of nutritional yeast is 200% of your daily B12.
